Wednesday, week 3

Cleans 90% Max
5x bar
5x 75
5x 95
5x 105
5x 115
1x 10 x 95 Hang Cleans

Getting good with this. We'll see how good on Friday.

Squat 80% Max
5x bar
5x 85
5x 95
5x 115
5x 135
1x10x 95

No trouble.

Push Press Max:
5x bar
5x 95
5x 115
5x 125
6x 135 +1 rep
1x10x 95 BNP

Felt strong, but wrist felt funny, so better part of valor bailed on any more extra reps. BNP, didn't feel wrist at all, so I'm wondering if I just pushed a bit funny one time. Whatever. Don't think it's an issue.

Pullups: 5, 5
Chinups: 6, 4 (-1 rep. Bitter!)
1x10x 145 lat pulldown

I usually use a platform so I just start pulling from my tippy toes, but today I had to work in with some guys doing crossovers, so I had to jump for the bar which I didn't think would have been a problem. Well, no. Big problem in that I started swinging and was all over the place controlling myself getting tired faster, etc., so I struggled all the way through these! I also yanked that elbow again on the second set of pullups, lovely. Didn't bother the chins, but still, very frustrating. Another lesson learned.

Still, good day all in all.
